I really enjoyed this book because I thought the author gave a nice twist to what seems to begin a Romance Novel. In the end, the message ends up being about the independence and self-fulfillment of the main character. I thought the colorful characters really added to what makes the novel unique...like the mentally disturbed finger hacking mother, her eccentric life-long friends, and a troop of Benedictine monks. The most important point that I took away from this read was that it's never too late to offer forgiveness, even if they might not accept the gesture.
